Empty Zones Matter! The "Shocking" Zaparticle Archtype!

Recommended Posts

   Once again in the mood to share my ideas, this time the somewhat incomplete "Zaparticle" Archtype, a group of Thunder monsters that like to either have empty zones between them or a sequence of monsters whose combined Level is 0 to make their spell/traps and ED monsters more powerful, all loosely based on the idea of positive/negative ions. it uses my (very unoriginal) concepts of "Negative" monsters (monsters whose level is a negative value) and my iteration of Trap Pendulums (seen here: 

The Monsters

    The strategy primarily revolves around using the effects of the three pendulum monsters to easily swarm the field, after which they can be used as both link materials and tribute fodder for you link monster's effects.

dflma5l-281488c5-d629-4661-909d-9ff56dca

"Once per turn, If you have a Thunder-Type monster in your other Pendulum Zone, you can draw one card for each empty zone between (exclusive) this card and that monster."

"If you control a face-up Thunder-Type Negative Monster you can Special Summon this card to a zone adjacent to that monster."

dflma5t-25b1d89d-da13-44f9-a50c-632fcfd0

"Once per turn, If you have a Thunder-Type monster in your other Pendulum Zone, you can target one card on the field; return that card to it's owners Hand. You cannot Pendulum Summon except "Zaparticle" Monsters. (this cards Pendulum Scales is always treated as -2)."

"If you control a face-up Thunder-Type Monster with a positive Level you can Special Summon this card to a zone adjacent to that monster. This cards Level is always treated as -1."

Nuetra by inkescher

"Target two Thunder-Type Monsters you control whose combined Levels equals 0, monsters you control in zones between those targets cannot be removed from the field until the Endphase, then you can Pendulum Summon Thunder-Type monsters. This cards Pendulum Scale is always treated as the scale of the monster in your other Pendulum Zone x-1."

"Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. If you control Thunder-Type monsters whose combined Levels equals 0 you can Special Summon this card from your Hand."

    The Link monsters, with the exception of Collida, each have effects revolving around the level of monsters you tribute for their effects or summon.

"1 Thunder-Type monsters
You can also Link Summon this card by discarding one "Zaparticle Prota" and "Zaparticle Electra", if Link Summoned this way you can, immediately after this effect resolves, Link Summon one "Zaparticle" monster from your Extra Deck using this card and other "Zaparticle" monsters you control. Once per turn you can tribute this Link Summoned monster (quick effect); Special Summon up to three monsters from your Hand, GY, or faceup from your Extra Deck whose combined Levels equals 0. You can only Link Summon one "Zaparticle Collida" per turn.
"

Wyrm by inkescher

"2 Thunder-Type Monsters
This card and any monster it is used as a Link Material for the summon of gains the following effects based on the level of "Zaparticle Monsters used as Materials for this card's Link Summon;
● -1 or lower: This card is immune to Spell Cards/Effects.
● 0: When this card is summoned destroy cards on the field equal to the number of empty zonesthis card points to.
● 1 or higher: This card is immune to trap cards/effects.
"

Origin by inkescher

"3 Thunder-Type monsters
If you control a Negative Monster and a monster with a positive Level you can move this card to a main monster zone between those monsters. Once per turn you can tribute a monster linked to this card, add one "Zaparticle" Spell or Trap card from your Deck to your Hand.
"

Reactor by inkescher

"2+ Thunder-Type and/or Negative Monsters
Once per turn you can tribute a monster linked to this card, activate the appropriate effect based on that monsters Level;
● -1 or lower: this card can attack all monsters with a positive Level your opponent controls during your next battlephase.
●0: add monsters from your Deck or face-up from your Extra Deck to your Hand whose combined Levels equals 0.
●1 or higher: Special Summon one Thunder-Type Monster from your GY or Face-up from your Extra Deck to a zone this card points to.
"

The Spells/Traps

I currently don't have images for the few spells/traps I have made.

Ionized Zaparticles

Quickplay

"Discard one card then target two Thunder-Type Monsters you control whose combined Levels equals 0; Special Summon as many "Zaparticle Ion Token" (Thunder/LIGHT/Level 0/ATK 0/DEF 0) as possible to Monster Zones between those targeted monsters."

Zaparticle Inversion

Normal

"Target one Thunder-Type monster you control; it's Level becomes equal to it's original Level x-1."

Zaparticle Barrier

Continuous

"Face-up Thunder-Type monsters you control cannot be destroyed by battle or your opponents card effects. Destroy this card if the combined Levels of monsters you control is not 0."

Charged Zaparticles

Normal

"Target all "Zaparticle" monsters you control in zones adjacent to each other whose combined Levels equals 0; Those monsters gain 500 ATK for each targeted monster until the Endphase."

      Felt like dropping in something I made around a year ago to see what people think. I'm really into ancient board games and thought an archetype based on Senet, or "The Game of Passing", would be appropriately themed considering the ancient Egypt aesthetic of early yugioh. I also took the opportunity to make a "zones matter" archetype, caring about adjacent zones and zone columns sense i love the idea but don't see it used very often, and no, this isn't based one the card Senet switch (mostly because i forgot it exists) but it did end up synergizing with it really well.
      Monsters
          The main deck monsters are each named for one of the parts of the soul in Egyptian mythology, six in total (one for each part of the soul plus the physical body), and have effects that either reference their namesake or based on an aspect of Senet. the monsters each follow a basic pattern for their effects, they can each only be summoned to your left most monster zone (the furthest from your graveyard) and once per turn can either move "forward" one zone (move to the zone on their right), send themselves to your gy if they are in your furthest right zone, or activate an effect unique to that card.
      Khet - The Body

      "Can only be summoned to your left-most Monster Zone. you take no damage from battles involving this card. Once per turn you can activate one of the following effects;
      ● Move this card to a right-adjacent Monster Zone.
      ● Tribute this card, Special Summon one Level 6 or lower Zombie-Type monster to the zone this card occupied from your Hand or Deck (ignore summoning conditions)."
      Ren - The Name

      "Can only be summoned to your left-most Monster Zone. Once per turn you can activate one of the following effects;
      ● Move this card to a right-adjacent Monster Zone.
      ● If this card is in your right-most Monster Zone, send it to your GY.
      ● Normal Summon one Zombie-Type monster in addition to your Normal Summon/Set.
      If you have five "Next World" monsters with different names in your GY (including this card) that were sent by their own effects you win the duel."
      Ba - The Personality

      "Can only be summoned to your left-most Monster Zone. Once per turn you can activate one of the following effects;
      ● Move this card to a right-adjacent Monster Zone or, if that zone is occupied, the next Monster Zone to the right.
      ● If this card is in your right-most Monster Zone, send it to your GY.
      ● Move a left-adjacent Zombie-Type monster to the right-adjacent zone."
      Ib - The Heart

      "Can only be summoned to your left-most Monster Zone. Once per turn you can activate one of the following effects;
      ● Move this card to a right-adjacent Monster Zone.
      ● If this card is in your right-most Monster Zone, send it to your GY.
      ● Add one Continuous Spell from your Deck or GY to your Hand."
      Ka - The Double/Essance

      "Can only be summoned to your left-most Monster Zone. Once per turn you can activate one of the following effects;
      ● Move this card to a right-adjacent Monster Zone.
      ● If this card is in your right-most Monster Zone, send it to your GY.
      ●  Adjacent Zombie-Type monsters cannot be destroyed (Quick Effect)."
      Sheut - The Shadow

      "Can only be summoned (except by it's own effect) to your left-most Monster Zone. Once per turn you can activate one of the following effects;
      ● Move this card to a right-adjacent Monster Zone.
      ● If this card is in your right-most Monster Zone, send it to your GY.
      ● When a "Next World" monster is destroyed Special Summon this card from your Hand to the Main Monster Zone the destroyed monster occupied."

      "1 Zombie Type monster
      Once per turn you can tribute a linked monster, activate the appropriate effect;
      ● If the tributed monster is a "Next World" monster send one monster from your Deck to the GY, it is treated as being sent by it's own effect.
      ● if the tribute monster is not a "Next World" monster this card gains that monsters ATK."

      "2 Zombie-Type Monsters
      Linked "Next World" monsters are immune to your opponents card effects. Once per turn you can send one face-up Continuous Spell you control to the GY, Special Summon a "Next World" monster from your Hand or GY to a Linked Zone (ignore summoning conditions)."

      "2+ "Next World" Monsters
      Once per turn you can move a linked "Next World" monster you control to another linked zone. Once per turn you can return one face-up Continuous Spell you control to the Deck, add one Spell Card from your Deck or GY with a different name to your Hand."
      Spells
          the archetype has no spells or traps technically but i did give it four related but technically generic continuous spells named for the marked spaces on a Senet board. Each affects all cards in the its column.

      "When a card enters in this cards column from the Hand, Deck, or GY draw one card. When this card leaves the field add one Continuous Spell from your Deck or GY to your Hand."

      "Once per turn you can move a Zombie-Type monster in an adjacent column to this cards Column (Quick Effect). Other cards in the same Column as this card cannot be removed from the field."

      "Level 4 and lower monsters in this cards column can activate their effects an additional time during their controllers turn."

      "Once per turn you can move another card in this cards column to an adjacent column. When this card leaves the field return all cards in this cards column to the Hand."

      a few months ago I took a look at a set of cards intended for the final boss of my first Yugioh RP (never made it that far) and did a major update, they're almost completely different cards now but I'm still happy with them. for those wondering about the name their original gimmick involved making use of Destiny Board and the Spirit Message cards.

      So... Most people won't know this about me, but generally when I play this sacred card game we all love so much, I have a tendency to place my cards in the center of my field first. My brother on the other hand, tended to place his cards on the right side of his field. This always bugged me as a kid, becuz I couldnt figure out which way was correct.. or if neither were. To remedy this, I had thought up the idea of an archetype that forces the player to think strategically about where exactly they play their cards, as it could seriously impact the duel - for better, or for worse. Problem was, I never knew how to word the effects, since cards like "Which Starling" and all of the "Mekk-Knight" cards hadnt even been a twinkle in anyone's eyes yet. But now, my friends.. Now, after many years of having this concept and a rather poorly thought out and rushed attempt about a year ago, I can proudly say that I'm not only giving this dream concept of mine another shot, but that I've decided to go ahead and revamp my old attempt, by making changes to the old designs and attempting to make them quite a bit more thought out.
       
      Here's the basic idea, at it's simplest:

      WATER Psychic Ritual Archetype, based on humanoid slime creatures, that focuses heavily on the strategic and careful placement of its own cards in order to properly utilize the versatility of its abilities. The lower Level "fodder" monsters have a certain effect they can earn depending on which of these three MMZs theyre in: Center, Leftmost, and Rightmost. They also have a bit of a floating effect on destruction involving an opponent's card, becuz I was having major issues with being forced to end my turn cuz I got negated merely once. Plus, theyre slimes. They aint particularly easy to kill. The Bigger, Bossier, Ritual monsters of the archetype focus on disruptive effects on summon with column play, they give buffs or get abilities when there is an archetypal monster in an adjacent MMZ to them, and some gain an additional effect if there is a Spell/Trap card in the adjacent space below them. 

      Now that the basic summary is out of the way, without further ado, the "Protean" archetype:
       
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Main Deck Monsters
      Cerulean Protean
      WATER - Level 3 - Psychic/Effect - 800/1300

      Whew! That was a lot.. Please feel free to critique these and give inputs on what needs nerfed, what needs boosted, etc. But as of the current moment, I feel pretty good about the way this turned out!~ P.S. I dont have a clue how to utilize spoilers in this format, so sorry for the wall of text..
    • By a1joryj
      Thunder/Effect
      ATK: 1000
      Link: 1
      1 "Batteryman" monster
      When this monster is Special Summoned, you can Special Summon 1 Level 4 or lower "Batteryman" monster from your Deck. That monster cannot attack for the rest of this turn.
      Author's Note: Playing Batterymen myself, I've noticed they can struggle a little bit to make a move going first considering 9-Volt self-destructs after the turn it's summoned and have a hard time setting up a consistent board. This monster helps to relegate that issue.
       
      Also I have no idea how to upload a picture onto this thing, can someone help me?
    • By Truffle Shuffle
      Performance of the Garma Sword
      DARK | ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ | Warrior/Ritual/Pendulum/Effect | <6>
      2550 ATK | 1850 DEF
      Effect: Once per turn: You can send 1 Ritual Spell or Ritual Monster from your hand to the GY; Negate the effects of all monsters Special Summoned after this effect's activation until your opponent's next End Phase. If this card you control would be destroyed: You can banish 1 Ritual Spell or Ritual Monster from your hand, Deck or GY instead.
      Pendulum Effect: This card can Ritual Summon itself from the Pendulum Zone. You must also Tribute monsters from your hand or field whose total Levels equal 7 or more.
       
      This was an idea I had in mind for a while. Originally I was just going to make a Fusion/Pendulum that had to be made from the old Performance of the Sword and Garma Sword, but Garma Sword is a rare piece of cardboard in this day and age, going for over $100 on ebay, etc. Really took the wind out of my sails. So instead she's more of a retrained Ritual of both the original cards, with the design being as if the Performance of the Sword/Commencement Dance girl is performing the Garma Sword Oath, etc. The reason I'm putting her here in Experimental instead of Singles is because A) As far as I know there has never been a Ritual Pendulum before so I'm not really sure how far I can take the "Ritual Summons itself" idea, and B) I really didn't know what to do for her effect. Any help would be appreciated.
